. the crash of asiana flight 214 ut of sfo. the ntsb will hold a briefing about 11:30 to update us on their investigation. preliminary investigation showing the aircraft approaching too low and too slow to land safely. the pilot tried to correct the plane in final seven seconds before the crash, but at that point it was simply too late. asiana airlines says the pilot landing the flight was training to fly that 777 and had never landed one at sfo. the airline says a more experienced copilot was also on board and does not believe the training pilot was the cause of this crash. the crash ended up killing two teenage girls from china. this morning their parents, among dozens of victim family members who left china for san francisco. once they meet with the victims' families, the coroner is expected to release information on how the girls were killed, including whether one of them may have been hit by a fire truck responding to the scene. meteorologist christina loren is telling us it's a pretty nice way to start the workweek. >> we have gray skies, overcast conditions over the bay brid
's deadly plane crash at san francisco airport. this afternoon the ntsb agents planned to speak with the flight crew on-board asiana flight 214. the focus is centering on the pilot who only had 43 hours logged on that 777 aircraft. tom costello is live in san francisco. tom, what about the possibility of pilot error? >> reporter: clearly that is going to be on the ntsb's radar here as they try to figure out what happened. the reason they are looking at that is because we know this plane was coming in very low and very slow at between 100 and 116 knots. generally when you come in to a landing here at san francisco international airport with a 777, you want to be at 137 knots, then add five knots for safety. out there on the runway behind me, you see the broken shelf flight 214 out on runway 28 left right now. investigators going through that wreckage, piece by piece, and they will do that for the next several days. this will be a long exhaustive process and you can imagine it is going to take some time but we do know that that pilot you were talking about, his name is captain coo
ntsb investigator is with us tonight. the early read from the voice and data recorders were the ingins were performing fine, the flaps were set. yet this plane somehow slips far below the approach speed. what are your thoughts? >> that's going to be a big question that needs to be answered. the board has to verify that that was the correct speed for the weight. but then they have to find out why the crew didn't monitor that speed and see that it was falling below their target earlier than they did. it's apparent that one of the crew members said increase your speed. but by then the accident sequence was already happening. and by the time they reacted and pushed the power up, the airplane settled into the ground. >> back me up a second. i know planes have auto throttle. is this the case where that would have been controlling the speed or would the pilots have positive control? >> it's a combination of both. that's what the board is going to have to ferret out is were they using part of the automation or a lot of the automation during the approach. and even if they do use the automation,
in a states where air traffic is frequent. a team from the ntsb is scheduled to arrive this afternoon. >>> now to the crash of flight 214 in san francisco. this morning we're the getting our first look inside the jumbo jet. you can see what's left with many seats becoming mangled on impact. the voice recorder has been recovered. they are looking closely at the plane's actions shortly before the crash when i pilots appeared to abort the landing. >> a go-around occurred 1.5 seconds before impact. >> the crash tore the plane into two main pieces with its tail separating from the rest of the plane. it's still unclear what role, if any, the pilot played 234 the accident. it was the pilot's training flight in a 777 but that he had thousands of hours of experience and had landed 747s before at san francisco's airport. >>> of the 307 people on board two teens from china are confirmed dead and officials are looking into one of those 16-year-old girls might have been killed by a rescue vehicle. an autopsy will be performed later this week. >>> answers of asylum for edward snowden. three countries are of
killed one of those two teens. we have this from ntsb. this is video from inside the plane. it shows mangled rows of seat. you can see the debris. this is scattered along the runway, including a part of a wing. the plane was coming in too low and too slow. the back end struck the seawall. that's at the end of the runway severing the tail. sent the plane skidding on its belly. dan simon is at the san francisco airport. we're learning more and more about the pilot had only 43 hours of experience on this plane. do we believe the investigators think this lack of experience flying this particular aircraft had something to do with the crash? >> reporter: the bottom line is we don't know. one would think based upon what we have seen from the data recorders is they will be looking at pilot error very closely. let me tell you about this press conference. we'll be hearing from first responders, police officers and firefighters who responded to that scene in the minutes after this crash occurred. by all accounts they we are formed heroically rescuing these victims, but there's something uncomfo
of it? >> i think the ntsb continues to signal all they're seeing is indications of pilot error. somewhere along the line human beings made mistakes and it's at the point where they say we're getting so much evidence that's pointing to one conclusion that they're probably going to be nervous and take a look and make sure there's no mechanical problems. >> you have a model of a 777 right there. i understand you have a friend who was a pilot and he was flying two planes behind the aircraft that crashed? >> yes. >> what did he see? >> he had made two observations, one how professional the authorities were getting the people off the airplane. the other as he flew over as they waved off and went by the crash site, he actually said that he remarked to his co-pilot, he said there are a lot of people that just died down in and so it was a surprise, a shock for him to come back and find that the casualty count was so low. >> exactly. many people, when you see the aftermath, it's amazing that more people were not seriously injured and killed from this. we keep seeing this right here, colo
went wrong? nobody knows right now. the ntsb is hoping to talk to the crew today. we do know it appears this crew was coming in too low, too slow. they tried to abort at the last minute, but it was far too late. the so-called brach black boxes, flight data and cockpit voice recorders are shedding light what happened in the final seconds of asiana flight 218. during the approach, the conversations in the cockpit were routine, no indication of any problems until just seconds before landing. at seven seconds before impact, a call from one of the pilots to increase the speed. the 777 was coming in too slow, below its target speed of 137 knots, just over 157 miles per hour. >> we're not talking about a few knots here. we're talking about a significant amount of speed below 137. >> reporter: just three seconds later, the crew gets a warning, the plane is about to stall, losing lift, and its ability to fly. less than two seconds before impact, the pilot calls to abort the landing, but it's too late. the jet slams into the seawall at the runway's edge. this image from an eyewitness shows the p
. but, again, that needs to be, you know, finalized by the ntsb. and we're very early in the investigation. but it does not appear as though there is a design defect, malfunction, anything related to the manufacturing of this 777. and as a result, i think you're going to see little, if any, reaction in terms of the stock of boeing and the long-term implications for boeing. >> the interesting thing here, phil, is -- i don't know a lot about planes. but, you know there's enough systems on board planes theoretically these planes should be able to land themselves. to have an accident like this where it was just too low and not going fast enough seems extraordinary. >> reporter: it does seem extraordinary. we take for granted that when pilots are flying planes, the assumption that many of us make is, well, he puts it on autopilot and just glides it right into the airport. and that's not always the case. at the end of the day, you want your pilot to be able to maneuver the airplane, to make the changes that are necessary. and not just glide the plane in. again, it's so early
investigation? san francisco with the head of the ntsb, deborah hersman, chuck todd, dr. nancy snyderman and adventurer bear grylls will be here in the studio. up next the top stories in the politico playbook. first bill karins, not really an adventurer. >> no. >> we kind of like him. >> kind of like him? >> kind of good to see you. >> one day a week. let me know what day that is. >> okay. >> good morning, everyone. overnight tropical storm chan tell formed. our third storm already in the early hurricane season. this is not expected to be a huge ordeal but the forecast path does have me at least interested. the storm well to the east of the lesser antilles and 700 miles from barbados. not expected to become a big powerful storm but should be somewhere near florida or the bahamas as a weak system. now we have storms heading across illinois and wisconsin overnight. you're going to deal with the rainy morning there. we've had very warm temperatures this last week or two. today will be no exception. the humidity, it's still very high from chicago all the way through dallas. that's a high hum
